The strength of your bigotry is evenly matched by the weakness of your witticism.

I hope the old lady wasn't too traumatised.

The description of the bloke is wrong! The boy who attacked this elderly women was wearing a green t shirt, grey track suit bottoms and scruffy hair and teeth. I saw this incident and helped the women untill police and paramedics attended the incident! Also it happened today the 5/08/13! NOT the 29th july!
I hope this poor women is home and safe with her husband now! xx
